Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Investigation and Adjudication Institute - Austin, TX


Program Purpose: To provide college and university administrators involved in investigating and adjudicating sexual misconduct cases information and resources necessary to conduct fair and balanced investigations that consider the potential impact of trauma, in line with evolving practices.

About NCCPS: In 2014, the National Center for Campus Public Safety (NCCPS) was charged in the Not Alone report to develop a training program on trauma-informed sexual assault investigation and adjudication that includes Title IX training for campus officials. To meet this mandate, we worked with nationally-recognized subject matter experts in the fields of sexual and gender-based violence investigations, Title IX, the Clery Act, due process, victim's advocacy, student conduct, and neurobiology to develop and deliver this groundbreaking curriculum.

Registration Information: Program registration is available to representatives from institutions of higher education and their local partners involved in the investigation and adjudication of reports of sexual and gender-based violence on campus. We encourage representation from your campus/community multi-disciplinary team. Registration is on a first come, first served basis.

*A note about the registration fee. The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) provided funding for the development and piloting of the curriculum, as well as a train-the-trainer course for instructors. Funding was not provided for delivery of the NCCPS Institute; therefore all deliveries are conducted on a cost recovery basis. Registration fees received are considered program income and are subject to federal regulations. Program income received from NCCPS Institute deliveries that exceeds the cost of the delivery is utilized for further program development. Program income not utilized during the NCCPS award period will be returned to BJA.
